5 years ago Excerpts from the Jan. 1, 2009 Pioneer Journal • No foul play in R&J fire No foul play is suspected in a fire that killed more than 40 horses and burned a large barn at R&J Horse Sales in Verndale on Dec. 21. Wadena County Sheriff Michael D.

He said foul play is not part of the equation.

I am one of four children. I am the youngest daughter and have a younger brother. My poor brother grew up with three mean sisters who loved to tease him. But we all loved each other very much and enjoy spending time together as adults. My brother Eric is really the genius of the family. Oh, my sisters and I are smart too. All of us have college degrees. But Eric excels in all things scientific. He has two bachelor's degrees in astronomy and physics. He is currently working on his doctorate in astrophysics.
I really enjoy this time of year. Christmas and New Year's means spending time with family and friends, playing games, dancing and enjoying good food and drinks. New Year's Eve is one of my favorite holidays because I enjoy a good party. I also love to try new drink recipes and indulge a fancy cocktail, which I only do at this time of year. Below are a few of my favorite drink recipes for New Year's Eve. The Zangle 1 oz. vanilla vodka (I use Stoli's Vanilla, but use whatever brand you want) ½ oz. triple sec 1 oz. orange juice 1 oz. half and half
